Damn you Ricky, for giving even an ounce of credence to Nors' latest delusion - that RW was a ball and chain in Miami.
Nors, Ricky is rationalizing.
Almost the entire football world is guilt tripping him about his retirement and the timing of it. Of course, he's uncomfortable with his new anti- role, and is looking for a silver lining - that the Dolphins O may become more balanced without him. Which is likely.
That doesn't make the Phins a better team without him, Nors.
